Often we look to the stars to help remember our loved ones that have passed on, now there’s a literal reason to.

New Zealand-based company Stardust Me have teamed up with Adelaide-based Alfred James Funeral Homes to offer an extraordinary way for families to remember their loved ones.

Enclosed in a titanium container, the service lets families send a gram of their loved one’s ashes into space aboard an Elon Musk-owned SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket.

The container will orbit for a decade before re-entering Earth’s atmosphere, creating a star-like spectacle.

One South Australian family has already embraced the idea, with their loved one’s ashes set to launch from March.

In a world where families seek meaningful and unique ways to remember their loved ones, this innovative service promises to leave an cosmic mark, making celestial remembrance a reality.

It’s understood the cost is around $3000.
